AutoDry PC/PLC CONTROL

THE STELLAR

Laboratory Freeze Dryer comes complete with PLC controls and a PC for programming and data collection. Our easy-to-use software, Opti-Dry, provides automatic freeze-drying, defrost, and system test. Data can be printed either numerically or graphically. This same control system can be used on industrial dryers, allowing scaling to production. An interactive maintenance screen simplifies component servicing.
